about

Between Love and Nothing at All is the newest EP by Norwegian lo-fi naive pop electronicThe Society of Poor Academics. On this go-around, the band is fortunate to be accompanied by The (wonderful and inspiring) J. Arthur Keenes Band. With two versions of their contagious offering Weekend backed with two additional fine tracks, Between Love and Nothing at All is instantly listenable and immediately memorable. It is a pleasure to listen to and is another piece of the ever-growing jigsaw puzzle that is tSoPA.

Track Name: Weekend
A quarter past we were intimate
Half past I'd been degraded
From a lover, a friend, a confidant
To a guy that you once dated
Well see if I care

A quarter to I was shouting at you
At the hour I was gone
I guess it's true what they say
Time sure flies when you're having fun
What am I supposed to do now?

Two steps forward, three steps back
Miss your next turn, have a heart attack
Love is an art, if you pass by start
No longer someone's honey, don't collect the money

What should I do with that gift I got for you?
I don't think they'll take a return
I'll find an active volcano and drop it down
And watch that bastard burn, burn, burn

You said that you loved me
But that was a quarter past three
Now it's midnight, and all hope is lost
Time is money and I can't afford the cost

You say it's not me, it's you
Well fuck you too

Two steps forward, three steps back
Miss your next turn, have a heart attack
Love is an art, if you pass by start
No longer someone's honey, don't collect the money
Track Name: Tanker Går Dit Tanker Vil
Alene igjen, huset for meg selv
Prøver å fordrive enda en kveld
Lede tankene bort fra dit de helst vil gå
Må finne noe annet å tenke på

Men tanker går dit tanker vil
Kan ei styre hvor de går til
Som en flom eller hus i ild
Tanker går dit de vil

Når jeg skal sove får jeg aldri fred
Tankene kommer og følelsene blir med
Et tomrom jeg må fylle opp som før var fylt av din nakne kropp
Ufrivillige erindringer er blant nattesøvnens hindringer

Tanker går dit tanker må
Kan ikke styre hva man tenker på
Veien kan være lang å gå
Men tanker går dit de må

Når søvnen omsider henter meg inn
Er det fortsatt uro i mitt sinn
Urolige netter, som et fanget dyr
Alene igjen, en ny morgen gryr

Det var jeg som fant deg, dekket av ditt eget blod
Jeg kunne i det minste ha fått sagt ha det før du dro

Men tanker går dit tanker vil
Kan ei styre hvor de går til
Tanker går dit tanker må
Kan ikke styre hva man tenker på
Track Name: You Will Do (For Now)
Are you the one who will keep me warm at night
Make me feel as though everything will be all right
By my side forever more, from twilight to twilight
Each other's destiny? No, that's probably not right

But you will do
But you will do for now
But you will do
For now

Will you be the one who sweeps me off my feet
To a life of luxury at some island retreat
Romance and coconut milk, always comfortably hot
My one and only? Most likely not

But you will do
But you will do for now
But you will do
For now

More a stumble than a fall
Between love and nothing at all
No pressure to perform
I don't mind my milk lukewarm
No flowers, no 'I do'
I can't see myself with you
For more than a year or two
I can't see myself with you
For more than a year or two
But for now you will have to do
For now
